Defending champions Spain were unable to do more than draw 0-0 with Italy in the opening game of the European Championships.

Ginés Menéndez's side had the better of the first half, but Borja in particular was unable to beat the opposite keeper and Sarabia had an effort cleared off the line by a defender. Edgar also had a couple of saves to make though from Libertazzi and Beretta.

It was more of the same after the restart, with Alex and Borja bringing further saves out of Perin, but in the end they had to settle for a point. The other group game between France and Switzerland ended 1-1, so there is still all to play for.
